Step Into Legend
The Hurons told of a sacred place some eight leagues distant. There stood a rock called Ekarenniondi, marking the path to the Village of the Souls.
Nearby could be found the cabin of Oscotarach, who gazed Eastward toward the approaching souls, and who drew away their memories so they could cross to the afterlife unencumbered.
Since Jean de Brébeuf recorded these tales in 1636, adventurers, archaeologists and historians have sought the legendary crossing place. They finally found it here, high atop Blue Mountain. Now, you can explore it for yourself, and step through the very portal of the underworld.
Venture Deep Inside Blue Mountain
Explore a labyrinth of caves and crevices. Search near Ekarenniondi for the shadows which marked paths to the mysterious underworld. Explore the hidden natural fortress which sheltered the Petun people from their enemies. Descend into the ice cave - a cravasse so deep and cold that snow and ice often remain here through early summer.
Brave The Heights For A Spectacular View
Step to the edge of the limestone cliff to look down on 10,000 square kilometres of beautiful countryside and the deep blue expanse of Georgian Bay, over 300 metres below.
Hike The Shady Trails Of A Unique Nature Reserve
The Niagara Escarpment has been designated a biosphere reserve by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Beneath a canopy of sugar maples and read oak, admire each season's display - clusters of whiter birch, forest berries, wildflowers, trilliums and such rarities and the Maidenhair fern.

Do You Dare?
Fun and Adventure at the Highest Point on the Niagara Escarpment...
You step slowly onto the platform and grip the handrail tightly. A gust of Blue Mountain wind sends tremors down the rail and up through the deck. And you begin the long walk. Through the trees you catch glimpses of the valley floor far beneath your feet. But it seems you're suspended even higher in the air. Far below, Georgian Bay sparkles in the sunlight, and spread before you lies a 10,000 square-kilometre view. From your vantage, more than 300 metres above the Bay, you gaze down Blue Mountain toward Collingwood, and across the Bay to Wasaga Beach, Christian Island, and in the distance, Penetanguishine. You try not to think that a mere 8 centimetres of timber is all that lies between you and the ground.
An Unparalleled Vista
Free of the earth, suspended high above the ground, you have the most spectacular view possible of Georgian bay and the surrounding countryside. With a sturdy wire fence lining the walkway, even the smallest adventurer can see everything.
Adventure For Everyone
Expect all the excitement of a daring crossing - a narrow walkway high above the ground, the sensation of being suspended in space, the slight shiver of the wind beneath your feet. Getting there is a breeze: take a short stroll down the slope, or hitch a ride on our country wagon.
